Is Babyzen Yoyo Overhyped? An honest Babyzen Yoyo stroller review

Reading Time: 5 minutes

Let’s take a look at Babyzen Yoyo stroller

This is an older version of the Babyzen Yoyo stroller that we owned. Babyzen recently released Babyzen Yoyo2 earlier this year (2020). It still looks about the same with the previous model. For me, I think Yoyo looks simple and elegant. It’s light, yet sturdy. At only 6.2 kg, it’s a breeze to push around. When it’s unfolded, the dimension of a Babyzen Yoyo is 106 x 44 x 86 cm. It’s not bulky at all, and we can navigate through the MTR station and small space of Hong Kong restaurants easily. Surprisingly, even though it’s lightweight it’s pretty stable. My son often falls asleep in his stroller as the wheel suspension seems to absorb the shock pretty well.

footmuffs for US$125 to keep your little one warm during cold winter. The insect shield retails at US$24.99 which in my opinion is a little too expensive but it is a very good fitting insect cover to protect your little one from insects.

Let’s have a look at the cons

The first cons are definitely the price. The Babyzen Yoyo stroller is not cheap. We are using the older version of Babyzen Yoyo. Currently, their latest model Babyzen Yoyo2 retails at US$499. Also, this stroller can’t be used from the newborn stage. In order to use it from the newborn stage, you will need to purchase the newborn pack separately which clips on the same stroller frame. Currently, the newborn pack retails at US$199.99 .

Of course, this lightweight and compact folding stroller function comes with a setback. The seats are pretty small. It’s padded enough to be comfortable but the seat isn’t big enough for our chunky boy. Recently Babyzen added footrest into their line of extra accessories for Babyzen Yoyo. We bought this for our son and it added more comfort for him especially for nap time. Although, it’s not very big and the way it works is by clipping it on the frame. When my son kicks them hard enough it doesn’t hold its position. When the foot rest is clipped on the frame, it does not affect the folding of the stroller at all which is a plus point.

Parenting Pain : Honestly this is a good stroller, I just personally think it’s not worth the price brand new. If you are able to find a good deal on a second hand Babyzen Yoyo, I would say go for it.
